5.0 out of 5 stars Great solution to get power to your Roadhawk HD, free up your cigarette lighter and reduce cable clutter, April 2, 2014
This review is from: Timetec Hard Wiring 12V Power Cord Kit for Roadhawk Car Vehicle Dash Cam Blackbox DVR (Electronics)
Length:: 2:50 Mins

The Roadhawk HD is a great DVR for your vehicle. But it's not so cool to have your cigarette/power port tied up exclusively for your Roadhawk HD when you've got other devices that need power like your smartphone, GPS, etc.

Here is a great solution for that... this is a hardwire kit for the RoadhawkHD. It's not that difficult to install or can be installed by someone else for you. The power plug cord is 16 feet in length that should accommodate most installations. The power lead is 3' and has an inline fuse. There is also a small inline box that apparently is an automatic low-voltage shutoff swtich to protect your battery from getting too low if you have this wired directly to the battery rather than on a switched circuit.

If you were to go to Radio Shack and purchase the wire and connectors necessary to make your own hardwire kit, you'd probably spend this much anyway. Might as well just get this since it's all ready to go.

I was provided a sample for review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roadhawk Camera Power Supply, April 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timetec Hard Wiring 12V Power Cord Kit for Roadhawk Car Vehicle Dash Cam Blackbox DVR (Electronics)
First, the Roadhawk HD camera is a great camera. I have a Roush Stage 3 Mustang in which I have mounted the camera to the rear view mirror using a BlendMount radar detector mirror mount. I wanted to power the camera from the 12 volts available in the dimming rear view mirror. At first I intended to make a simple power cable using a MirrorTap radar detector power cord and the camera connector supplied with the power cord from the Roadhawk camera. But I realized that the power cord included a voltage regulator and that I should probably make a cable that includes the voltage regulator rather than a cable that supplies 12 volts directly to the camera. I didn't want to cut up the camera-supplied cigarette lighter power cord, so I opted for this 12 volt power cord kit. I made a short cable that uses the 12 volts from the dimming mirror, the voltage regulator from this power kit, and the camera power connector also from this kit. The voltage regulator is attached to the rear view mirror using 3M double-sided automotive tape. Doing so, the camera works great.

As advertised to install a Roadhawk in my Lexus and make it look like it came from the factory like that. It made the job simple and easy.

Good quality cable and long enough to reach where you need it to go. This is a must have for hard wiring a dash cam into your vehicle.

I turn on the car and the dashcam starts recording. I turn off the car and it stops recording. It's totally unobtrusive.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must get one of these with your Roadhawk., April 18, 2014

This review is from: Timetec Hard Wiring 12V Power Cord Kit for Roadhawk Car Vehicle Dash Cam Blackbox DVR (Electronics)
I have had the Roadhawk hard wired unit in for several days and it's great. I tapped into my rear view mirrors power supply ans was done in less than an hour. You can't even tell it wasn't a factory option.
